Scholarships

How to Apply

These web pages list university scholarships administered by the IPFW Financial Aid Office and the external scholarships awarded by outside organizations.   All awards are dependent on availability of funds each year. 

Scholarships generally fall into two categories: need-based and merit-based.

Need-based scholarships are awarded based on financial need as calculated by the formula applied to the data you submit on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The resulting figure is your Estimated Family Contribution, also called the EFC. The lower a student's EFC, the more financial need the student has, and the lowest EFC is 0. 

Merit-based scholarships are based on many criteria, most important is exceptional academic performance.  Other factors considered may include community involvement, leadership, or field of study.  Each scholarship will provide information about applying and the application needed. 

IPFW University scholarships require the IPFW Common Scholarship Application   Some scholarships may have additional requirements.   Dollar amounts awarded for these scholarships also vary.
